It has been said over and over again that, “a rehab is only as good as its staffs”. So, it is of utmost importance to attend a rehab that has well trained and well qualified staff with a lot of experience. A good staff always talks and behaves properly showing respect to patients. They do not blame a patient for the state that they are in and are good listeners. They give right direction and proper counseling to patients which are an integral part in any patients’ recovery.
It is an accepted fact that a good rehab has a relapse prevention program. It is not enough to help them sober up and then leave them all by themselves outside the protective walls of the rehab. If that be the case then very few people would continue on their path to staying sober. The whole idea of a rehab and the basic need for a rehab would then be pointless and make no sense at all.
A rehab Center should be flexible and bend with the needs of the patient. The programs should not only focus in detoxification but also in disciplining the patients and building self esteem and confidence through proper therapy; exercises and good diet plans are also important for restoring health and keeping patients fit.
Apart from these cost is also a concern. But that too is no more a problem today, because there are many good low cost, State or Government funded or charitable rehabs Center available all over. Therefore when you are looking for a rehab for your kid make sure that these requirements are met. If you cannot afford the best you should at the least get your kid to attend a good one.
